Trip Details

A typical Everglades fishing day includes meeting for an early morning breakfast at a local restaurant and then loading up in Captain Derrick's 22’ Pathfinder boat. Then you can sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful boat ride and scenery as Captain Derrick navigates through the mangrove islands of the Florida Everglades. He then will use his experience to locate bait schools, as well as his expertise in throwing the cast nets, to fill the baitwell with what he likes to call “Snook Candy”.

Once he has loaded the baitwells you will then travel to some of the hottest Everglades fishing spots in all of Florida. He will tailor it to fit your Everglades fishing preferences. Maybe it is fishing the points for monster snook or fishing the backcountry of the Everglades to fish areas few have ever seen before or maybe it is to do both. You may also be the true sportsman and looking for the Everglades fishing slam (snook, redfish and tarpon) in one outing. Of course depending on the weather, water temperatures, and tides, your Everglades fishing plans could be altered to give you the highest percentage to catch as many fish as possible.

During your Everglades fishing trip it is very common to see porpoise (dolphin), manatee, rays, alligators, sharks, sea turtles and several unique species of birds (American White Pelican, flamingos, spoonbills, eagles, hawks and others).

Depending on how you arrive in the Everglades, Captain Derrick can also provide transportation from the local airport, hotels and restaurants. Also no fishing license is required because his Captain's license provides for that. You will need to bring your own food, drinks and sunblock but coolers are provided. If desired you can also do a unique "beach lunch" deep in the islands of the Everglades.
